Dressings/Sauces/Dips/Spreads: Alkalizing Millet Spread
Most grains are acidic, except millet and buckwheat.
Apart from being alkaline forming, millet also contains the highest calcium content of all grains, has less phytates than other grains, is gluten-free and packed with vitamins and minerals, e.g. Vitamin B3 which can help lower cholesterol.
Ingredients for 1 bowl
1 cup millet
2 cups water (best: alkaline water)
1 big white onion
1 tsp. vegetable stock (yeast free!)
1 tbsp. cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch of sea salt or organic salt
1 pinch of pepper
1 tsp. of your favorite garden herb(s)
1. Put millet, vegetable stock as well as the water in a small pot and boil for around 10 minutes. Put pot aside to cool down (approx. 5 minutes).
2. Meanwhile chop onion and stir fry together with the oil in a pan.
3. Then, add the onions and the herbs to millet, mix well and season with salt and pepper.
4. Finally, put in a mixer and puree for 30 seconds.
